John Carpenter | History, Development and Application of Neutron Sources

publicado em 19/02/2014

John M. Carpenter, retired senior physicist and Argonne Distinguished Fellow, talks about sources of neutrons for slow-neutron scattering research. Not about nuclear power reactors, which Carpenter believes would be über-presumptuous, especially in the surroundings. The lecture will touches on: Discovery of the neutron, neutrons as waves,what is spallation?, cosmic-ray protons, the first nuclear reactor, A2R2, Accelerator-based neutron sources, spallation neutrons, early spallation neutron sources, ZING-P, ZING-P', IPNS. K. F Graham, ING data, MTA, history of research neutron sources, slow-neutron scattering in materials science, and spallation neutron sources today. John Carpenter served as Professor of Nuclear Engineering at the University of Michigan from 1964 until 1975. He moved to Argonne National Laboratory in 1975 to assume responsibility for development of pulsed spallation neutron sources. There, he and his colleagues built and operated the first-ever pulsed spallation neutron sources equipped for neutron scattering, ZING-P and ZING-P'. These led to IPNS in 1981 and to other sources elsewhere: MW-plus installations SNS at ORNL, MRF at JAERI in Japan, and ESS in Sweden, and others of smaller scale, ISIS in UK, KENS in Japan, LANSCE at LANL, and SINQ in Switzerland. He is a co-founder (with R. G. Fluharty (LANL), M. Kimura (Japan), and L. C. W. Hobbis (UK)) in 1977 of the International Collaboration on Advanced Neutron Sources. He has served on advisory committees of most of the current spallation neutron source projects world-wide. Education: Pennsylvania State University: BS Engineering Science, 1957 University of Michigan: MS Nuclear Engineering, 1958; PhD -- Nuclear Engineering,1963
